Tears in Tennessee

entry picture

It’s been a long time since the Wichita Lineman hit the open road

By the time you get to Phoenix his soothing voice will lighten your heavy load

The shores of Galveston are a distant memory but the heartache still ensues

Then again you never forget those warm Southern Nights that give you the blues

A Country Boy from Arkansas who dreamed The Impossible Dream

He Tried a Little Kindness and was Gentle on My Mind so it seems

Glen Campbell will long be remembered as a legend as he serenades heavens skies

There are tears in Tennessee and for a Rhinestone Cowboy Nashville cries

Hi M.C. - He was a huge and enduring talent. Alzheimer's ultimately took its toll. Ironically Adios was his final album. Thanks for your feedback. T?

How sad when the gifts given to the world are sabotaged
by nature and the passage of time. I remember Jimmy
Webb (the songwriter who had given Campbell his biggest hits) recalling how the latter had turned to him one day and asked:
"Did you write Wichita Lineman"?
Nice tribute, Tom. Somewhere, I still have an LP of the singer's "Greatest Hits", plus, fittingly, his final CD.
